Spirit," or Psyche and Pneuma, the two great agents of
Kegeneration mentioned by Christ in His well-known
reply to Nicodemus (John iii. 5) :
" Verily, verily I say
unto thee, except a man be born of Water and of the
Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."
The symbolical Water bestowed in the Sacrament
of Baptism causes the Divine Seed within the heart of
Man to germinate.
The mysterious imposition of hands performed in
the Sacrament of Confirmation is the Magnetic Force
indispensable to the proper growth of the germ.
As long as the seed remains hidden in the soil it
still belongs to the dominion of Earth. A superior
element Water—descends from above, to assist its
evolution, and, thanks to this aid, the seed emerges
from its obscure prison and rises upwards towards the
Realm of AiR.
The Ascension of Man from Earth to Heaven takes
place in a similar manner. The germination of Divine
Manhood occurs, unperceived by all mortal eyes, deep
in the bosom ; but there dawns a day when the Inner
Christos, the Great Light hidden beneath the bushel of
matter, breaks through the hard crust that imprisons
Him, and emerges in radiant consciousness on the
higher planes of life : a new world unveils to Him its
glory Regenerate Man SEES and hears and
FEELS with entirely new senses that He did not possess
at an earlier stage of evolution.
